Little Ama photographed by @sfisherx 🐮 Ama was born into a wonderful life at @chenoamanor, she'll never be separated from her mother + will live out her days surrounded by love.
Did you know that cows are pregnant for 9 long months like humans? The milk they produce is meant to help their babies grow into adult cows. On dairy farms around the world a cow will give birth + minutes, hours or days after, her baby is taken from her. If the baby is male he will either be killed instantly, as he's seen a useless byproduct of the dairy industry, or he'll be chained in a tiny crate or box for a few weeks until he's then murdered for veal or cheap beef. If she's a girl she'll live the same life as her mom until she stops producing milk + is then slaughtered. 💔😢 Don't contribute to this cruel industry...go vegan.
"Dia mundial dos direitos dos animais. Pedimos respeito e não damos, clamamos compaixão e não a exercemos, pedimos empatia e não a praticamos...
Esse evento aconteceu pela @animalequalitybrasil em São Paulo na Av. Paulista. Eu só consegui enxergar ali um monte de bebês. Assim como nossos filhos, inocentes, dependentes, vulneráveis.. Dentre muitos animais que estavam ali foi realmente chocante olhar pra esse, já que o que plantou a semente do veganismo em mim foi um bebê igualzinho a ele. Aos doze anos presenciei um novilho ser amarrado pelos pés, içado, degolado e sangrar até a morte.. Assassinado! Vi o seu "couro" ser arrancando de seu corpo como se fosse ali um simples objeto. Esse pequeno bebê me remeteu a tantas lembranças que eu sequer conseguiria descrever a minha sensação. Eu só consigo pedir perdão, por mais que eu saiba que nós não mereçamos, perdão pela minha espécie.. Descansem em paz anjinhos...

They don't want to live in a pool! They'd rather die! And the try! This should break your heart if you realize what they're trying to do 😭💔
This video is from an aquarium in Moscow, Russia. The trainers filmed four bottlenose dolphins deliberately beaching themselves, the trainers spin the dolphins around and push them as an attempt to put the dolphins back in the tank.
The dolphins seen in this very video were once free in the ocean, living the life they were born to live. They were put into this living hell in 2016. They were once able to hunt, swim for hundreds of miles, dive deep and natural depths, explore and play. Now they are forced to live for the amusement of humans. They cannot engage in any activity which is natural to them what so ever. They have no enrichment or stimulation in this small bathtub other than what their trainers provide.
This video is absoloutley heartbreaking to watch, it shows what happens when you take sentient beings from their home and family and force them to live a life they do not want to live. This is no life for them, this is torture. The power to stop this is in your hands, please don’t buy a ticket. #EmptyTheTanks 🙏🌊🐬

I decided bats 🦇 would be my animal of choice with this moon 🌙 painting. I often wonder why bats are given such dark meanings from certain cultures. Poor little nocturnal animal did nothing to deserve that bad rap they get. 😌 My gramps had this story that terrorized me as a child. He told me that the reason he was bald is because the bats picked out his hair at night. I was terrified to sleep upstairs alone when staying over at my grandparents. They did have a creepy massive attic that got very noisy with bat noises at night often.... to be fair to myself. 😂♥️🌙🦇 #acrylic#painting#canvas#life#happysunday#art#respectlife
Im blessed and thankful to be alive . . Lets take it back to the old school when partying and getting fly was all we wanted to do. We werent “trying” to better than anybody . . We already “knew” we were bcuz it showed. #respectlife#respectthedj
One meat bird, 12 egg laying hens and a tour of my coops... at least once a year, I come across a meat bird (usually free from my feed store owner friend) I have been vegetarian most of my adult life but when I do eat an animal , I like to be a part of the process. It's disgusting and brutal but I was raised by a hunter/gatherer dad who had me harvesting frog legs at 10 years old. I use every part of the bird to make food for my family, my neighbors dogs and broth with the bones . It makes me enjoy my vegetables that much more!! #respectlife#meateating#harvest#killbill#chicken#meatbird#freshatarian
DAY 39 // Sorrowful Mysteries in Thanksgiving
The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I don’t know the reasons
Why you brought me here
But just because you love me
The way that you do
I’m going to walk
through the valley
If you want me to. -Ginny Owens
OPENING PRAYER TO BE SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF THE ROSARY // Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, Hail! At thy feet I gratefully kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses—snow-white buds to remind thee of thy joys—each bud recalling to thee a holy mystery; each ten bound together with my petition for a particular grace. O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces and Mother of all who invoke thee! Thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receive my gift, so wilt thou receive my thanksgiving; from thy bounty thou hast given me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly sought. I despaired not of what I asked of thee, and thou hast truly shown thyself my Mother.
